Kayak Fishing during Low Tide

You can catch more fish if you know what the bottom looks like. Recognize the terrain under the water by viewing it during winter time low tides. Knowing where the structure is that holds fish will pay off for you when the tide is low and later on when the tide is high as well. Deep holes in the treeline, barnacles and oyster beds, deep holes and channels can all be found during low tides. When others say, 'There's no water out there, I'm not fishing', you can go out there on your kayak and knock em dead! Thanks for all the subs! And don't forget to check out the new Facebook page. I post lots of pics and stories about fishing the salt flats here in Tampa, Florida. Click the link below to get there :) https://www.facebook.com/lovekayak.fishing Tight Lines Everybody!

Its funny going back and watching Marty fishing on his poor mans kayak. I started watching his channel when he was building it. I thought it was awesome. He has done so much since but the new boating and company updates are looking good. I need my life to be like his. Lol

In the Tampa area, most kayak launch spots are tiny access areas by the side of the road. This video was shot at Cockroach bay, which is a single ramp launch that gets very crowded. For yakers, at Cockroach you have numerous spots away from the ramp to put in.

What is your favorite recipe for fish in general? Would you mind sharing please?
TheSaltyVet
TheSaltyVet - 5 years ago
It's all about the blacken, get you a cast iron super super hot, throw a little butter in there, take some Paul Prudhommes Blackened Redfish Magic and liberally cover the fish fillets, throw 'em on, spoon butter on them occasionally, flip em as needed. Can't go wrong.

Tastes amazing on shrimp too.

Dipping a fillet in egg, then breadcrumbs and then pan frying is my go-to recipe. I add a little Mrs. Dash to the egg, sprinkle some powdered garlic to the fillets as they cook, and drizzle fresh lemon on em when they're done.

Your first fish was a mangrove (gray) snapper. As good of table fare as they get. Has to be 10"....5 per day limit. Be wary wary wary careful.....they will bite you....Hence the name SNAPPER.

That first fish was a Grey(Mangrove) Snapper and good thing you played it safe with the Toadfish they do have venom on their spines on top of their head, I am from the big bend area of Florida and fish all the time, I am so grateful to live in a area with such a diverse ecosystem, one place I fish you can start at the mouth of the river catching large mouth bass and red drum at the exact same spot. There's nothing better than hooking up on a bull red(Red Drum) or a gator trout(Spotted Sea Trout). Keep up the great videos.

You taugh me "catch and release" in another video, now you teach me that lesson again. Thank you! :)
I live in Vietnam, some people around my area live by catching fish, they catch whatever its big or small. I know its bad, but they're poor and they need it to feed their family.
I watched alots of your vids and by your GoPro, I saw alots of fish swiming below the boat everytime it goes down. Then, when I go to the riverside and fishing, there only small fishes left... I caught, then I release as your move.
May be I have badluck, or wrong way of fishin. But I think, for now, the only way for me to see the big fishes like yours is... dreaming and watching your videos :)
Thanks again !

I love watching your vids mate, I live in Australia were we get a fish called "bream" they grow o around 4kg. There shape is exactly like sheepshead but silver. They taste nice but not amazing. If your not busy look these fish up, "sand whiting" they are 5/5 eating quality.
Dusky flathead, there also 5/5.
Yellowfin bream, there about a 3/5 for eating quality.
Anyway, I hope you carry on with the channel, it's really great and if you do I'll know I have someone to watch for years to come
David Steer
David Steer - 6 years ago
I was thinking the same how sheepshead's look just like our bream. Even their diet of crabs, shellfish and other crustaceans are similar. And yeah, I agree about the eating qualities. Well made production. I too love the freedom my yak gives me not to mention the stealth factor.

Hey mate, love your videos. That fish you weren't sure on at the 9 minute mark was what most people call a red snapper - in Australia we call them Mangrove Jack's, absolute prize fish. Meant to be one of the best table fish, they are very sporting, especially after the 40cm mark, once they hit a certain size they head out to sea. Usually the first 2-3 seconds of a Mangrove Jack fight determines if you've caught or lost the fish.

Love your work mate.

You're in the water, alligators in the water, possibly bull sharks.
Start singing that song from JAWS- Quint was singing, you know the one. Fair well my fair maiden and so on. Liked the video though. From Florida myself, fished from a 16 foot bass tracker. We had wished we could shallow fish like you, catch more for sure. Just be careful. Sea trout, snook. Good eating. Nice job. Best part,like you said,boat won't get stuck in the shallows waiting for the tide to rise like the other boaters.

To clear up a little confusion about the fish you call a rockfish. A lingcod is a sharp snouted fish from the Pacific Ocean while the oyster toadfish is the blunt snouted strong jawed fish you caught here. This is the frustrating thing about common names and why scientists use scientific names so that no matter where they're from or what language they speak, they all have the same name. As always great and enjoyable video, Marty! Your videos are what made me decide to get a kayak for my fishing expeditions.

I live in California in San Diego right next to the border to Mexico. Great fishing. Last summer we had tuna. We were catching them off shore. They were huge. 3 to 4 feet long. Also king mackerel. I'm only 13 but I love fishing I go down to Mexico every weekend to go fishing. In cabo San Lucas I coaght a 10 foot blue marlin. An hour and a half long fight. I suggest go down the peninsula of Mexico. I drove from San Diego all the way to the end of the peninsula. Good fun.

I like at the end when you were talking to those people.
I've had days that I've spent more time letting people look at my kayak and answering questions (about why do I fish out of a kayak...and how...and where does everything go...and you're actually going out THERE??  IN THE OCEAN??) than I did fishing.  
One guy even asked if he could sit in it...
Sure! Why not!  

Most people are just curious, and many that I've spoken with really appreciate the ingenuity of making your own stuff...wether it be a cart, the milk crate...or any other add ons...
I'm glad to see that you're not only sharing your enthusiasm with like minded folks here in YouTuber land, but also just plain folks out enjoying the sun!  A friendly smile and a little conversation go a long way to giving kayak fishermen a better name.  

Keep paddlin', and tight lines!

But I used to catch sunfish at Silver Lake, NY when I was a kid. Look them up sometime, there are several species. Just as Tilapia can be both a fresh water and salt water fish, so are other kinds.

I live in Sun City and my son in law and I went out today, Christmas, and caught about 60 reds and about a dozen sheep head from 2:00 to 5:00.Went out from the mangrove crab bridge on 41  the flats were mud to about 6 inches so we looked for a hole and found one at 27degrees 52 min 47.24 north 82 degrees 24' 0.44 W.  Used shrimp, artificial, but mostly mangrove crabs. of course with that kind of bite anything worked.  Only one was over 18 and that one got away!  all the sheep head were under 12.  used circle hooks and a dehooker  so we were able to release without harm.  Most not even touched.  Have a great year.

this is an amazing video, like always. you are my favorite guy to watch on youtube. but one thing, i noticed you were starting to quit when the tide came in. i personally have found that when the tide is rising, all of the fish anxiously come in with the water looking for crabs and other critters that went onto the once-dry land. i cought my largest amount of fish fishing a rishing tide, (16 redfish, 24 trout, 4 flounder and 9 ladyfish all within 4-5 hours on plastics and spooks). but i do take into consideration that you had 3 shrimp left. and those were working at the time. thanks for making such amazing vids!!!!!

The music was perfect, it blended in and you never noticed it getting in the way and the composition on your shots was great, around 6:30 you are in the background framed by the two small islands and behind you is the horizon and you go into shadow so are a silhouette against the sky, it was such a cool shot. and the Sheepheads looked like a good dinner too.that is one of my favorite fish to eat.
hey check out Google earth and see if you can't use some video of your fishing grounds from up in the sky. there is a guy in the UK that does great work using Google earth in his videos, his channel is Keep Turning Left.
 Thanks for sharing Marty and keep em coming. I think one day maybe you will have your own fishing show.

Are you still using a gopro? And if so how are you getting such good audio?
zoffinger
zoffinger - 8 years ago
I am still using the GoPro. I have the non-waterproof backdoor on the housing most of the time and get good sound that way. I just covered the area over the rear of the housing with fur to keep the wind noise down.

Ohh man I did not know that water level gets that low. I have been out there with tide coming in and tide coming out but never when it was at super low tide. Cockroach bay is a place of many wonders. Every time I go there and take a new trail and usually get lost in the pockets of water... it is so peaceful and in the flats water is super calm. I should go out there some time this winder. Now that Alafia has dropped to its low level I will be paddling that but I may see you out in the mangroves sometime again. Keep up the good work. Also a thing to keep in mind. Focal point of gopro is about 1ft distance so that is why your corkscrew shell came out slightly blurry. Happy fishing!

Thanks for the tip on the focal length.  I was sad not to get a clear look at the 'rockfish'.

Great video, love the back trax, too. Extremely well done. You are exactly right, Marty.  Survey the surf at low tide. In fact I've caught some of my biggest fish at dead low tide (the pro's round here scoff at me - say it ain't possible) . When the water level drops the baitfish have to retreat to deep water and the game fish will stay in those holes waiting for the incoming.

I always have better luck during low tide, Tom. I think it's because the big fish can't hide deep in the trees and are forced to roam the exposed areas on the flats. And then, there are only a limited number of areas they can fit inside.

Really great Marty, thanks so much for the new vid, was wondering when you were gona do another. I noticed that you had different reels from your Okumas, did you get new ones? Did you start having trouble with the Okumas? Just got an Avenger 40BF for abit larger stuff, and going to order a Trio 30BF to replace an older reel that the gears are going....
zoffinger
zoffinger - 8 years ago
I just bought a new light/medium action rod and put an old reel on it to check it out (sounded like sandpaper when I cranked it) I like the new rod. Fun for small fish. I might get another Okuma 30BF for it.

My fingertips were numb, Nigel! Haha. It was 60° F in the morning. If it's not 85 or higher, it feels like it's freezing ;)

I was thinking about putting a small bar and pulley for crabbing. Not sure if I should put the base off on the side or in the middle. The bar would swing out and over with a small pulley at the end. Do you think that would work?
Thanks again. Your Vids are awesome.

Thank you, Aaron. Yak fishing is hard to beat. I visited a friend when I got off the water today. He's got two boats but spends most of his time fishing from a kayak!
